put a ring on it before the apocalypse

I’m about to be 25.
A quarter century old.
And lately, my facebook news feed has looked like this. A lot.

Not my hand.
Not my hand.
Definitely not my hand.
It’s probably because today is the last day on earth, right?
Or maybe it’s that other thing…oh right, Christmas time.
Also known as engagement season.
It’s happening in my real life, and it’s happening in the blog world.

Having this happen to so many friends has made it a topic more and more often in my personal life. Certainly Nav and I feel like we’re in it for the long haul.
We live together.
We have a puppy together.
And we’re even celebrating our Christmas together for the first time this year.
We aren’t getting engaged anytime soon (I promise),
but I still think it’s fun to talk about rings, dresses and weddings.

I guess we are just that age, right?
Like somewhere in all of this I realized that in 5 years, 
I’ll probably have a child or be close to having one. 
And that’s scary and wonderful and exciting.
It just seems like even though many changes happen during childhood and young adulthood, that the transition in the 20’s must be the biggest.
Many people begin their 20’s single and end it married with kids.
That’s a lot in one decade!

Just food for thought, 
in case your news feed is also blowing up with
ring after ring after ring.
Good luck during the apocalypse!
Since it’s already 12/21 in Australia and lots of other places,
I think I’ll still rest easy tonight.

Happy Almost Friday!
